African American Heritage Storyteller, Ilene Evans to perform!
“Voices from the Earth” presents African American Heritage Series Folktales by Storyteller Ilene Evans at the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2008 at 2 p.m. The free event will be held at Waldomore, the historic mansion next to the library.
During the one-hour concert, Ms. Evans will perform African American Heritage stories, poems, games and songs, with audience participation. Her presentations are energetic and lively, including dancing, singing, dramatic vocal talent, and leave the audience with a feeling of having been a part of the story. Her stories not only tell the tale, but they seek to teach a lesson or at least to inspire the audience to think more about themselves and the world than they normally do on a daily basis.
For more information, contact Gail Marsh, community relations coordinator, at the library at 627-2236.
